So if you've been meaning to enter, there's now a little extra time to make sure you don't miss out on the chance to be one of our winners.
Last year’s awards attracted a record number of entries of a very high standard, and the evening ceremony at London’s Brewery was a glittering occasion with a fantastic atmosphere. This year’s promises to be even better.
Can you join a roster of prize-winners which last year included Nursery of the Year Little Barn Owls, Nursery Chain First Steps, Pre-School Magdalen Gates and Nursery Food winner Elmscot Day Nursery?
For 2016, we've introduced a new category – Health and Well-Being – which aims to reward early years settings, services and projects that have worked to improve the physical health and/or emotional well-being of children, families and staff.
The Nursery World Awards are open to everyone in early years education and childcare, shining a light on best practice and helping to raise the profile of the sector. Through all the challenges that face them, dedicated professionals continue to improve their skills and qualifications and do a fantastic job for young children. This is your chance to be recognised and celebrated.
